You don’t have to be an expert to do it! Anybody and everybody is welcome, and we can often provide you with equipment such as binoculars if you don’t have your own.
There are a myriad of nature reserves, hides and visitor centres where you can discover Scotland’s wildlife for yourself. If you’d like some help or to meet like-minded folk then try a day out with a wildlife guide, jumping into a 4x4 to spot land-based beasties like red squirrels, roe deer and pine marten or hop aboard a boat tour to admire Scotland's fascinating array of seabirds and marine wildlife like whales, dolphins and seals. If wildlife watching is the main goal of your trip, you could embark on a multi-day wildlife watching holiday or field studies course.
